Home at Last

We got released from NICU earlier today and have spent about 5 glorious hours at home now.  Jude is doing great and as long as we triple feed him (breast feed, pump and give him breast milk and then offer formula) everything seems to be fine. We are hoping once S’s milk comes in full force we can stop doing the triple feeds as they take forever and we’d like him to have as little formula as possible but we will see what happens this week and what our pediatrician says.  Thanks for all of your comments of support.  This has truly been the hardest week of our lives and it can only get better from here!

We will try to post some of the cute 200 pictures I’ve take of him by now tomorrow.


  1. I'm so sorry you had to go through all that but so glad you're all home safe and sound now!

    More pictures of the cute little man are definitely always appreciated but not urgent, get some rest and spend some more time with your Mr.!

    1. PS- stupid blogger wouldn't let me comment on your last post. So sorry! I was definitely there wincing in sympathy though.

  2. So glad you three are home and on the mend. Hang in there.

  3. Whoa! redesign! I like it! I also like that Jude is out of the NICU and home with his mamas!

  4. Glad all is well. That would have been scary. I'm sure things will fall into an easier routine with more time and more milk. If you need the formula, don't feel guilty about it. We have two beautiful kids, one formula fed and one breastfed. They are both bright, healthy, etc. :) Also, I used formula when our son was still hungry or for convenience (i.e. driving and he's melting down, we'd give him a bottle in the car seat.

  5. Glad you are home! Looking forward to the pictures! And what...ONLY 200 or so? Slackers! LOL :)

  6. awesome to hear you are home again. hope you get in feeding groove soon, it's so hard, but it will get better! hang in there! :)
